Sunday, 25 November 2012

Gloria Mass of the Most Sacred Heart (Jacob Bancks)
Psalm The Lord is King (Paul Wellicome)
Gospel Acclamation Here in our Midst (Peter Jones)
Preparation of the Gifts Let all the world

Communion Te saeculorum principem (chant) & Jesus, remember me (Taizé)
Postcommunion The Truth From Above (Traditional, arr. R Vaughan Williams, 1872-1958)
Recessional Christus Vincit (arr. Martin Baker)

Our Lord’s words in the Gospel were:

I came into the world for this: to bear witness to the truth; and all who are on the side of truth listen to my voice.

Vaughan Williams’s haunting folk-song arrangement began and ended:

This is the Truth sent from above…
Be pleased to hear what he did say.

Our closing chant Christus Vincit was given redoubled vigour by Martin Baker’s fiery organ part. It was followed immediately by Marcel Dupré’s Placare Christe Servulis: more organ fireworks from our excellent organist Anthony Hunt.
